Furry Friends at Velvet Friends Cat Cafe

I have always wanted to go to a cat or dog cafe after reading so many things about it on the internet. That's why I'm so happy that one cat cafe finally opened in a very convenient place for me. I'm talking about Velvet Friends Cat Cafe at the Blue Bay Walk Pasay City. My friends and I were able to purchase 50% promo via Metro deal and it was really worth it especially for a first timer like me! Without the discount, their rates are  P190 for children below 10 years old and senior citizens, P240 for students and P290 for regular customers. This already includes a 1 hour stay in their cat haven & a free milkshake. 

Upon entry, you will be greeted by a very fun and cat themed room. Their decoration is simply adorable and every corner screams cat! 

Their sweet treats are also embelished with cats decoration.

I am happy with their price range, very affordable , delicious and of good value.

I tried their strawberry milkshake while my friends had vanilla milkshake and boy it was so delicious!

For an Php 85 milkshake, it was really good. The shake is made of pure ice cream so what you'll get is a glass of full creamy and flavor packed drink. 

We waited for the first group to finish because we want to enjoy a less crowded space. The room accomodates maximum of 15 person. 

Just a few notes if you plan to visit the place. 
- Bring socks. Yes, no shoes allowed inside the "haven".
- Worry not about bringing many stuff as they have lockers for your bags. Only cameras/phones are allowed to be brought inside the haven.
- Wear something comfortable, especially if you want to go after those meow meows who choose to retreat in the unreachable corners of the room.
- Worry not about the fur sticking on your clothes. Velvet's got a lint roller.

Rules inside the cat haven.


Now it's time to go inside! Their friendly staff will orient you first about the do's and don'ts inside to ensure harmonious visit with their furry friends! Someone will also orient you about the personalities of each cat, like who wants to be touched, who hates people, etc. 
Cute I.D.'s to identify your time

Inside the haven. How I wish I have this in my house.

Real life Garfield!!!
The gentle giant. He keeps on avoiding me though. Haha!

They have toys that you can use to win their heart.

This is one of the most expensive cat they have, it costs around Php 150 thousand pesos!

This cat is Mr. Snob, he doesn't want to be touched or carried.
Helloo cutie pie!

Cats trying to get away from us! haha

1-hour bonding with many cats is enough to play with them & take unlimited photos (and yes, selfies) with the gang. Just no use of flash please Their cats are harmless, but of course guests are expected to be gentle on them. Velvet Friends hosts14 cats of many breeds. From ragdolls, to british short-hair to puspins (pusang pinas), they're all here. Some are playful, one can be grumpy, another seem to be lazy. Whatever their traits are, one thing's for's cuteness overload!

Best time to go is either early morning (store opens at 11AM) or late afternoon (dusk to evening) as most of our feline friends are into "siesta"-mode from lunch til mid-afternoon.

So plan your next bonding at Velvet friends cat cafe!
